The intended wedding of Captain Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond (John Howard) to Phyllis Clavering (Louise Campbell) at her villa in Switzerland is stopped short (once again) when someone murders the Swiss policeman who is guarding their wedding presents. The killer makes off with their prize possession, a synthetic diamond, made by a secret process by Professor Bernard Goodman (Halliwell Hobbes), the father of their good friend Gwen Longworth (Nydia Westman). A guest, Sir Raymond Blantyre (Matthew Boulton), head of the Metropolitan Diamond Syndicate, disappears at the same time, and Drummond suspects that Sir Raymond, who has the most to lose if Professor Goodman proceeds with his plans to publish his secret process, has something to do with the theft. He leaves Phyllis and chases back to England. Colonel Nielsen (John Barrymore), of Scotland Yard, as usual scoffs at Drummond's suspicions and insists that a man as respected as Sir Raymond could not possibly be involved in such a crime. But, as usual, he has Drummond followed just in the event he turns up something unexpected......
Ya think? What could happen?

The usual cast of characters in a well-plotted yarn. Barrymore is a little too over-the-top.

Worth A Watch
While not as good a movie as Bulldog Drummond Escapes, which contains events preceding those in this film, it's still entertaining, with the usual mix of action and comedy. John Howard stars as Bulldog; the only actors returning are those playing his unflappable butler, Tenny, and his scatterbrained friend, Algy.
I downloaded the 'DivX' file. It's an AVI with DivX video and mp3 audio. The video is washed out; the audio is good.
